Embellishing my boots

with a sparkly anklet,

just because I can.

Made with bits found scattered about the messy studio,

 a length of gold chain,

a scrap of thin brown sable ribbon

and black satin cording.

I used a small gold tone safety pin to attach the pieces together

and then did a simple braid

and used the safety pin to attach the other end.

Then I did a little hand sewing to secure everything.

Just thought I'd share the silliness and crafty fun!

Zentangle hibiscus bowl

Experimenting with a zentangle design,

just having fun doodling on a greenware bowl 

using Duncan Cobalt Crystal Black cover coat underglaze.

Followed by a clear glaze and final firing.

Just thought I'd share the finished product with the friends who watched the process.

Cookie cutters, clay and crochet

While shopping for some new cookie cutter designs 

 for a Christmas cookie exchange 

that I have been asked to participate in, 

I came across this adorable bird.

The cookies haven't been made yet, 

but I have a sweet ceramic bird dish,

and charming vintage lace embellished ornaments!

They would also make great gift tags or ornaments

and considering that they are zero calories, can be sprinkled with 

glitter instead of sugar and they will last forever,

I wonder if the girls would mind?

Thrilled to have A Somerset Holiday 

publish them in their 2017 issue!
